STEMMER IMAGING AG has signed an agreement with 3D machine vision camera company Zivid for the distribution of its market-leading Zivid One+ cameras and software throughout Europe. Providing human-like vision capabilities, the cameras meet the demands of a wide range of high performance robotics and industrial automation systems.
The new Genie Nano-5G GigE Vision cameras from Teledyne DALSA provide exceptional data transfer capabilities using industry-standard Ethernet technology at an extremely attractive price point. With data transfer rates in excess of 5 Gb/s possible over cable lengths up to 100 metres, and a choice of high performance Sony sensors, these new cameras open up a host of new applications in a wide range of industries.
The new Bonito PRO camera family from Allied Vision achieves 25 Gigabits per second with quad CXP-6 CoaXPress for high-speed, high bandwidth applications. These include automated optical Inspection, flat panel display inspection, printing inspection, 2D/3D surface inspection, and aerial surveillance.
Systems with an extremely high performance are required in order to inspect labels or other printed web goods and detect faults with 100% reliability at speeds of up to 350 metres per minute. AB Graphic produces such machines and in doing so uses imaging components from STEMMER IMAGING.
Bergader Privatkäserei, established in 1902, relies on state-of-the-art technology as well as traditional craftsmanship in the manufacture of its cheese specialities. A hyperspectral imaging system is being used for the first time for the packaging of the blue cheese ‘Bergader Edelpilz’.
High requirements for speed and accuracy make machine vision an ideal solution for quality control in the print and paper industries. The German company Roptec proves that this technology goes far beyond the mere production process. Their machine vision system is used for optical quality control in the handling of paper rolls.
